|Catastrophic clutch failure|
Well I have had an interesting time in the garage the last 8 nights and days sorting out a potential catastrophic clutch failure.
The clutch in my bike has only been running on the dyno a little track time and the clutch is ready to explode. When I say the clutch, it is the lockup devise I made of the wrong materials as there are signs of fatigue cracks in the lockup clutch part.
I telephoned a friend in the U.K. to advise me on the problem and this man is fantastic on what metal is best for the job.
So we now have two new clutches, one for the race engine and one for the spare engine. This will not explode at the side of your leg under all that power being created.
